I see Cityjets EI-RJU has had all of its engines removed in DUB, I assume it will be removed on a truck or scrapped in DUB? It's many years since an aircraft has been scrapped at DUB. If this is its fate, I would expect to see it flown to somewhere like Kemble, where specialist dismantlers operate....Jump to post
United have canceled and further delayed the return of many of their international routes: Chicago - Dublin now canceled instead of returning Jul 1 Newark - Shannon now canceled Washington - Dublin now resuming Oct 24 All of this was previously posted in thread #4 The information in thread 4 referr...Jump to post
Was'nt American due to switch to the 787 on all its Dublin routes this year anyway, before the Covid outbreak. I dont think any A332s were scheduled. Delta were due to go to an all A333 in DUB and Air Canada were due to go all 787 in DUB. I think United were due to have 2 787 routes and 2 757.Jump to post
Hard to see anything being ordered before next year but I think the A220 would be a good medium term replacement for the first 10-15 older A320s and the two 146s over the next 4-5 years, with the remainder of the A320s being replaced by NEOs in the longer term. Cant see the 146s lasting another 5 ye...Jump to post
I don't think they will all permanently retire all 757s until the A321neoLRs arrive to operate the thinner T/A routes. AA and UA have ordered the A321neoXLR rather than the A321neoLR, so it wont be in service until 2023. I think Delta has only ordered the standard A321neo so far so I think all 3 wil...Jump to post
There doesn't appear to be a wifi dome anywhere along the fuselage. It wasn't wifi enabled at Qatar Airways anyway, their A330 fleet is surprisingly dated. Is that not a wifi dome between the first and second doors, directly above 'Aer'? It looks smaller than the one on the other EI A330s. I'd be s...Jump to post

I know there is a dedicated thread for COVID-19 but couldn’t find any information concerning flights to Ireland. Now I understand the U.S have added UK & Ireland to the ban list. Question is Ireland still accepting inbound passengers travelling from Australia for example? Sent from my iPhone us...Jump to post
United cutting DUB to one daily flight until end of April.

Don't forget Transaer, they lasted a few decades. Also EuroCeltic, they had a Fokker F27 until it was damaged in a landing incident in Sligo airport.
Aer Lingus to reconsider transatlantic flights from Cork.

Would the apparent performance issues with the A321LR not be an issue?
How much of the fleet by type is in new livery. Noticed about 5 on the ground today. 3 Main pier and 2 at South Gates. A333 - 4/10 - Including EI-EIM & EI-EIN in BRU and TLS respectively. A332 - 0/5 A321LR - 4/4 - Including EI-LRD in XFW A321 - 0/3 A320 - 6/34 Avro RJ85 - 2/2 ATR 72/42 - 0/12 A...Jump to post
Considering the ongoing Coronavirus outbreak, does anybody know what bookings are like for the new DUB-HEL-PVG route? I hope it's launch isn't delayed.

It's also worth noting that the original EI A321s were used on lot on DUB-LHR in their initial years but more recently the A320 has become the dominant type, with the A321 assigned to longer high-demand routes. Correct, the original A321s were ordered in the late 90s specifically for LHR flights. T...Jump to post

I wonder why that new A330 is not being stored in DUB or SNN after the work in Brussels is completed, there is plenty of space and EI staff could carry out any necessary tasks or training on it in the run up to it entering revenue service. Lower parking charges elsewhere perhaps?Jump to post
Would be cool if one of the new A321s came in one of the other retro liverys... https://www.google.com/search?q=aer+lingus+retro+a321&client=ms-android-samsung&prmd=insv&sxsrf=ACYBGNQxieEM296JY80HjdMaf6AAOuoPCQ:1579542342744&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwiOu_zh3ZLn...Jump to post
Not too keen on some of the Items in the new uniform but overall its not too bad. The contrasting green collar on the long men's coat is quite cool, and the suit looks fairly sharp. Perhaps its like the new livery, it will grow on customers. I suppose not many uniforms stand out nowadays. I think Ry...Jump to post
